Im not law enforcement but sometimes i watch shows and for a minute it makes me think i am \:D

Was watching police women of memphis and a guy was doing some contractor work or something at a house. Some thug came up and tried to rob him and luckily the victim was armed and shot the thug. I do remember the victim raising heck because they were taking his gun. He didnt even act like he cared he had just shot someone he was worried about his gun.

So yes im guessing from that incident they take it for a while.

They taught in my hcp class that you should be prepared to surrender your firearm with no thought about when you may get it back. Maybe you will, maybe you wont. Might be a good idea to have potential access to another firearm for defensive purposes in case the bad guys friends decide to pay you a visit a few days after the initial incident.

real good chance you will not get it back and if you do prepare for some fancy engraving by the tbi or other agency.

i asked our instructor about it but he never got around to answering me
in my thinking if i'm at risk of totally losing the gun then i'm better off carrying a 300 dollar gun that i am competent with rather than a 700 dollar one
don't get me wrong i could probably never shoot it again anyway if i had to use it that way but i could stand the loss better

Yes it will be taken. Yes if your found not guilty of any wrong doing it will be returned. Normally you have to wait untill the next avaliable grand jury date so we can present your case to them and let them dismiss it, No true bill.Or if the DA make the decision not to take the case before the Grand Jury. I am Law enforcement and I have done this.

Think about it. You just saved yourself or a loved one. Is that not worth the price of another gun? H*ll, I would buy a thousand new guns if it meant I still had my wife.

Im not law enforcement, but I was involved in a home invasion shooting. The sheriffs dept. took my gun and 1 live round. I was given a piece of paper with all the gun info. I was told I would be contacted, when I could pick it up. I got the pistol back 3 weeks later. I was told they fired the round for testing against the bullet that was found in the intruders shoulder.

Also get a property receipt. If ones not offered request one. It should be standard procedure but some of the smaller departments are a little backwards.

Your gun will be taken for evidence and sent to the TBI for ballistics testing. Ask for a evidence property reciept and make sure make, model, and serial number are correct on it as well as your personal information. The gun will be held until the case is over and then returned. I have had several guns sent to the TBI and they were returned just fine. After all of this get ready for the civil lawsuits from the criminals family for several years.

Not in TN. As of 2008 (I think it was), the TN Legislature expanded the "Castle Doctrine" laws to affirmitively stipulate that no civil action shall be allowed in the event that a shooting was ruled justified.

If you're right, and the DA rules your shooting legally justified, the "victim" and/or his family cannot file a civil suit against you.
